Are you unsure of your Major or Career goals?

The SuperStrong Interest Assessment is a great tool to use when exploring careers and majors. It is helpful to complete before meeting with a counselor as the conversation revolves around your major choice.
You do not need your Fullerton College ID and do not have to meet with a counselor for this free assessment.

2. Complete the Fullerton College Online Orientation

Learn valuable things about Fullerton College and it’s services and how to receive assistance with your educational planning.

The orientation can be accessed by logging into MyGateway  using your new Banner ID, click the “Fullerton” tab, click “New and Returning Students”, and then click “Fullerton College Orientation”.

Once you pass the quiz and the Orientation is complete, there will be check marks under each tab.
Please note that you must pass the quiz at the end of the orientation to satisfy this requirement.

5. Registration: Full-Time units (12* or more!)

Students are required to enroll in 12* or more units to qualify for the North Orange Promise. When you meet with a counselor, they will recommend how many units to take each semester.

Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA and complete 67% of the units attempted each semester.
